openSUSE installed on Scouts Computers



Greek openSUSE community in association with GreekLUG, helped 13th Scout Team of Thessaloniki, to upgrade the hardware and install openSUSE on 3 computers. Unfortunately one computer was broken broke due to hardware malfunction, but Efstathios Iosifidis found another one and replace it.

Those 3 computers are very old. One of them comes with Gnome (Pentium 4 with 1GB RAM) and the other 2 with LXDE (Pentium 3 with 256MB RAM or less) but both are very slow. Unfortunately they didn't have Internet installed yet, since this would be a good task for them.

Kids already started to check the graphical interface and of course check some games (see the pictures).

KDE Release Party in Larissa

Last week in Larissa LinuxTeam hosted a KDE Release Party for 4.6. The event was listed in the KDE promo's wiki page, hosted in the university and there was a presentation about the new technologies and renovations of KDE 4.6 in which a member of the Greek openSUSE community Giorgos Tsiapaliokas was one of the two main speakers, the other was Theo Chatzimichos from Gentoo Greek Community. Of course Ι was there along with Kostas Koudaras and Stathis Agrapidis (another active Greek community member) who came from Thessaloniki in order to attend the speech and spread the word about openSUSE 11.4. We also had set up a booth with stickers, flyers, openSUSE 11.4 Milestone 6 KDE live cds, openSUSE 11.3 dvds, my netbook with openSUSE 11.4 Milestone 6 and some KDE promo material (stickers and badges) from the KDE e.v. which by the way I want to thank them for it because they managed to send me the promo kit on time. We talked about the new technologies of openSUSE 11.4, met new people and had fun. After the event we went in a local tavern along with LinuxTeam members, ate local food, drunk some tsipouro (local drink) and continued our talk about communities and Linux in general.

Some photos from the event. You can find more here.
